The gentleMACS™ Octo Dissociator with Heaters is a benchtop instrument for the fully automated and standardized tissue dissociation or homogenization of up to eight samples.
Equipped with eight individual heating units and numerous optimized and ready-to-use gentleMACS Programs the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters offers a fully automated workflow for tissue dissociation. In addition the instrument allows the user to create user-defined programs for almost any biological material. All eight positions can be operated independently.
Single-cell suspensions or thorough homogenates are easily and reproducibly obtained using the unique C Tubes or M Tubes. These single-use gentleMACS Tubes allow sample preparation in a closed and sterile system, providing a high level of user safety and minimize cross-contamination.
The gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters is equipped with several programs for fully automated tissue dissociation into single-cell suspensions, including:
- mouse or human tumor
- mouse or rat neonatal heart
- neural tissue
- mouse spleen, lung, lamina propria, epidermis, or liver
- mouse or rat skeletal muscle
- and more
Additionally, user-defined programs can be used to create fully automated workflows for all other tissue types.
